For anyone thinking that taking a three day trip when moving is two days away is a crazy idea, let me affirm and say yes to that. Nonetheless, it is also a good idea, because it means a) what could be be done in five days gets squished into two days and b) three days go in relative peace, and the two days (after you return) in utter panic, so there is very little time to do much thinking about the “actual move” as such.
Hampi is truly a lovely lovely place. We did very little, and the highlight was a ride in the coracle in the Tungabhadra river, a kind of a circular boat made of bamboo and rowed with one paddle.
Anyway, we got back yesterday morning, and now I slightly panicked before the movers come tomorrow. But before I go and sign off for the year, here is the final project that I finished last week.
This one goes to V again, and I want to say a really big thank you to V’s mom for pushing me do this. She probably does not realise how hard I tried to convince her that I should not do this–how I could not come up with a good enough idea for decorating a bedsheet for V.
The basic idea was pretty simple–A (V’s mom) handed me a bedsheet a few months ago and told me that I could do whatever I like with it. Because its something that one sleeps on rather than something that is used to cover, I knew that I wanted to do something simple–something that would not get caught in anything (like earrings), and still remain basically a comfortable bedsheet that V could sleep on.
After trying out a a variety of things, finally this is what worked out: lots of flowers, lots of colours and simple running stitch.
I hope V likes it. And thanks a ton to her for her patience.
Ok, must go. A happy new year to to everyone!
